Rush Limbaugh used his radio programWednesday to lash out against President Obama’s plan to censor the word“Islamic radicalism” from a National Security document that deals withthreats confronting America.
Obama advisers say the new version emphasizes that the U.S. does notview Muslim nations through the lens of terrorism.
But the change is a radical shift in the National Security Strategy, adocument that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventive war.It currently states, "The struggle against militant Islamic radicalismis the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21stcentury."
Limbaugh, America’s number one rated conservative host, thinks theObama initiative is dangerous.
On his show Limbaugh said:
”Obama and his idealists, young whippersnappers,think the United States is the problem. We are attacked because wedeserve to be. We have been imperialists, we've overstepped our boundsin the world, it's totally understandable why they would attack us andcommit acts of terror against us. So what do we need to do? We need togo in there and build them schools, and we need to get them healthcare, and we need to talk to them about science. Meanwhile, we do nothave the money for this.”
”I ask a question? Maybe somebody can help me withthis. What are we doing having relationships with the Muslim worldanyway? Do we have a relationship with the Catholic world? Do we have arelationship with the Buddhist world? Do we have a relationship withthe Jewish world? Well, if we did, Obama's taken care of that. But wedon't have relations with religious worlds.”
”If we can't call Islamic radicals ‘Islamicradicals,’ we shouldn't call rapists "rapists." We should call them‘uninvited perpetrators,’ or ‘penetrators,’ if you wish. Murderer? Doyou think people like being called a murderer, even if they are? Do youthink that's going to forge a decent relationship with murderers?”
”So the premise is we deserve it. We should have beenhit. It's time we face the facts, and to prevent them from hitting usagain, we have to acknowledge that. Stop calling them Islamic radicals,stop calling them terrorists, instead build them hospitals. I can'timagine what it must be like to be in a family who lost someone in 9/11to hear about this guy's plans for the Muslim world. I can't imaginewhat it was like when they found out that this government was willingto spend $200 million a year in security for the people who blew up theWorld Trade Center in a civil trial. I can't imagine the anger theymust have felt.”
